A Furious China Responds To Latest Sanctions: Demands "U.S. Immediately Correct Its Mistake" Or Suffer Retaliation

Tyler Durden's picture

Less than 4 hours ago, the US Treasury announced that in the the latest set of actions targeting North Korea's "WMD program", among the entities sanctioned would be several Chinese and Russian companies and individuals. We said that "what this latest round of sanctions will achieve, is to further anger Beijing and the local population." Well, we didn't even have to wait all day for China to respond on the next morning as it traditionally does, and according to Reuters citing an embassy spokesman, Beijing was so furious with the US "provocation" it scrapped its own protocol of waiting during a "cooldown" period, and instead ripped right back, "urging" the U.S. to "immediately correct its mistake"' of sanctioning Chinese firms over North Korea, to avoid impact on bilateral cooperation.

Since the US will not "correct its mistake", either "immediately" or at any time, China will have no choice but to escalate, in the process making any credible diplomacy involving North Korea impossible, forcing" America's hand when it comes to North Korea, now that the diplomatic option is out of the picture.

And virtually assuring that there is no hope for a diplomatic resolution of the North Korean crisis, earlier today a North Korean envoy to a UN disarmament forum refused to negotiate its nuclear program, accusing the US and South Korea of using joint military drills to carry out “an aggressive war scenario” and “a secret operation” against the North’s leadership.

“The DPRK will never place its self-defense nuclear deterrence on the negotiating table or step back from the  path it took to bolster the national nuclear force,” a North Korean diplomat stated at the UN disarmament forum in Geneva, as cited by Reuters.

The comment follow a statement by the state-run KCNA news agency on Monday according to which “the situation on the Korean Peninsula has plunged into a critical phase due to the reckless north-targeted war racket of the war maniacs." Meanwhile, Pyongyang has again threatened to strike the US base in Guam, which it earlier promised to attack if “provoked” by Washington.

Trump turning up the heat.  With China's banking disaster (huge level of non performing debt) along with the asset outflows, it will not take much to cause some serious pain over there.

Fuck the arrogant, freeloading Chicoms.

They have a simple choice:  Get with the fucking program or kiss their One Belt initiative goodbye.

Playing with terror and nukes in Southern Asia does not make for a healthy geopolitical investment environment.

So, China, here's your chance.

They can't,  it's used as an asset that is counted as collateral against other debt.

Chinese corruption has kept the population there on the bleeding edge of revolution for decades now.

This isn't the 50's/60's where loyalty to the party was good enough to keep the population from rising up.

And oh yea, fuckin around with the internet does nothing, they go thru your "great virtual wall" like a hot knife thru butter...

Pray tell CPL, what is happening in a month?  I know some evil shit comes our way, but enlighten me and others.  Can you be more specific?  War, major market collapse, geo disaster or all of the above and more?  BTW, I am not being sarcastic.  I am always looking for new info.

There are many days I believe that America is the Portuguese word for "land of the Zombies" --- just like the past few days.

Let's see now . . . back around 2012, Chinese military hackers hacked into the Pentagon and various defense contractors, stealing the plans to all the major US weapons systems, including the Navy's AEGIS System.

Five years later, when China has a cyberwarfare partnership with North Korea's Bureau 121, several US Navy missile cruisers, AEGIS System driven and BMD capable (ballistic missile defense, used to track North Korean missile launches) are put out of action.

Now, I have long been a critic of the all-volunteer military, and believe (and not just because I was drafted) that America should have a draft system in place where even the Chelsea Clintons and Donald Trumps have to serve, but I am righteously perplexed how such at-sea accidents could possibly take place, and so close together, and in the timeframe when North Korean continues to perform missile test launces, and when these vessels have such state-of-the-art systems aboard?

They are satellite-connected, and although I am a bit rusty on satellite communications hacking, I do recall that during a guerrilla war in (what's considered to be) a Third World country, a comm satellite was hacked into, and last time I checked, China is actually supposed to be ahead of the USA in satellite communications.


The attacks mean that the LTTE is now unique among world guerrilla movements in having troops, a navy and an air force. The rebel group has taken its campaign into outer space, having hijacked the Intelsat Ltd Intelsat-12 satellite in geosynchronous orbit over the Indian Ocean to beam its propaganda across the Indian subcontinent.


Am I suggesting that the vessels were hacked into by the Chicoms or a joint Chicom-North Korean team?

I don't know . . . what would the facts lead you to think? ? ?

Even if they vessels were hacked.  You'd think one of the people on watch would LOOK OUT THE WINDOW. HTF do you miss an oil tanker coming at you..

Hey. Just watch that lil hole on mccain. Too low, too small, too orthogonal. 9/11 Pentagon "attack" comes too mind.

Tanker ... humph.

Here's the legal requirement for all US vessels: "5. Look-out
Every vessel shall at all times maintain a proper look-out by sight and hearing as well as by all available means appropriate in the prevailing circumstances and conditions so as to make a full appraisal of the situation and of the risk of collision." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Regulations_for_Preventing_C...

The ignorant landlubbers offer excuses for the inexcusable.

China's the rising power. The Zio's are pretty much done with the USA, except for the final looting and takedown. With all due respect, y'all should have seen that coming after they did 911.

peddling-fiction's picture

Just the shell of America is left.

However, I am confident that the U.S. will rise again, with only a defense-focused armed forces.

But this final takedown will not look pretty.

DHS is sharpening the blades, as we speak.

The cheka is in charge again, and blood is needed for Moloch.
